Location: Check Me Out Showcase (Austin, Texas)
Evaluator: Brandon Clay

Rickard pulled up Sunday morning ready to go. She’s emerging as one of the state’s premier guards in the class and showed improvement on her jumper to help back that billing. Rickard won the 3-point contest to close out the Academy and that was after a full morning of skills, drills and competition with and against her elite peers from the Lone Star State.

Rickard is a dynamic option on the ball. She sets the tempo with her play. Rickard showed here that she can stretch the floor with her shot in addition to creating off the bounce as well.

Rickard was one of the more talented underclassman in the camp. Her ability to create off the dribble made our staff take notice. She did a great job of attacking the lane with either hand and did it with confidence. It is apparent that Rickard is a player who is well trained in the advanced fundamentals of the game. She also has the athleticism and explosiveness in her legs to create plays versus most defenders. She also proved she could hit the jumper off the dribble and the reversal pass.

Rickard is still developing physically but has all the tools to be a high level guard. She sees the floor, can handle the ball and make the right read. Continuing to understand where, why and when to make a play will only enhance her current skill set package. Rickard wasn’t intimated at all by going against players three to four years her senior in the session.
